After 5 nights in lovely Barcelona and a night in Casablanca, Sierra and I are currently in Marrakesh at the most ridiculous hotel I've ever seen.

Marrakesh is ridiculous(ly awesome) from what I've seen. Time to go see more. And get foods. Foooood.

P.S. Everything is in Arabic and French. I speak neither of these languages, but I understand the French letters and a lot of the words. I know like 5 French phrases. They don't get me very far.

If you get the chance go have coffee at sun down at the Hotel CTM on the south east corner of the Djemma El Fna.

You basically get to watch the orange sellers pack up and then the barbeques set up and all the water sellers, story tellers and snake charmers turn up.

It's pretty mind blowing.

The barbeques are pretty good to eat at but the ones nearer the back are more dodgy. I ended up with the screaming shits from one.

By the way, if anyone offers you Kif it is is *not* a type of local delicacy. Just saying.

I know two French phrases: "I love you" and "I don't know." Apparently, I would get along quite well in a French speaking country.

Weird, my ex wife just moved to Marrakesh a couple of weeks ago.

Lol.

Supposedly there are a lot of cats running around and the town is pretty much pink.

If you are at La Mamounia, it is supposed to be tantamount to Paradise. A little wallowing in luxury can't hurt. :)

OpenId idea

(Link)

Hello, Brad! I hear you working in google. I think: OpenID needs browser support! I mean: when I register in site that gives me OpenID URL, browser must remember it! And, when I go to the site with OpenID client, browser can ask me: would I like login to this site as LiveJournal member (show list of OpenID identifies i have). Bingo!

How about to integrate in Chrome this feature?

I agree.

Btw, this comment has nothing to do with this blog post. Perhaps email? Or join chromium-dev.
